Title: Any field recording, replayed, begins to dream...
(cc) Green Field Recordings, 2016
A piece created with sounds collected during two stays in Frigiliana, Andalusia, 2014-15.
Any field recording, replayed, begins to dream...
As there are waters under the mountain... As there is blood in the stones...
Life divided into streets, narrow and steep. Echoes. Water roars in the ravine. At the corner of a sun struck square a culvert mutters. The mountainâs unconscious seeps into the fountains. Voices burble in shadowed rooms.
Divided, narrow and steep. The effort to climb away from historyâs shale and scree. At dawn the sky is valley, the valley is sky. Daylight teems as though twilight will never be. At night the bells fall silent.
